    Russia has been invited by the Syrian government; the United States hasn’t. Russians on the ground in Syria are recognized in international law as there legally.

    Is mindlessly continuing or increasing the Obama / CIA / Saudi / Israeli / Qatari / Turkish / UAE illegal war against the Syrian people worth this WWIII risk? **** no.

    Now watch the lunatics currently in the White House, CIA-HQ and Pentagon act more belligerently in response to this warning like the provocating terrorists they are.

    Personally if "Warboma" or "Crooked HilLiary" to solidify his/her name in history as the worst POTUS ever and soil the family name, starting WWIII would be a great way to do that.

    Frankly I'm not sure I'd want Trump steering this ship either. As soon as Putin changes his mind on Trump and calls him an incompetent, immature, child, Trump will go ballistic.

    This is relevant when you hear about people trying to pin Trump into 'supporting' Putin in reaction to these incidents.

    The situation is spiraling fast into a disaster, and the US have absolutely no right to be or act in Syria.
    If this is not stopped immediately we are going to have losses in the tens of thousand

    It's the 1960's all over again. Except we don't have a strong President willing to put the Military in it's place. JFK put a kibosh on Operation Northwoods and he would have put an end to the excessive drone strikes. He handled the Cuban Missile Crisis and could deal with Syria as well. I judging from all the extrajudicial killings he approved, I don't think Barry has the balls to reign in the Joint Chiefs.:( Trump is too incompetent.o_O Hillary is a warmonger.:mad:

    I'm hoping Mr "What is Aleppo?" or Jill Stein can save us. Jill Stein, you're our only hope.:oops:

    Please don't misunderstand the situation: The Joint Chiefs of Staff take their orders from President Obama. They certainly advise the President, and they certainly carry out the specific orders and policies given to them via the Secretary of Defense. But in the United States we have a very strong institutional mechanism that ensures civilian control over our military. That's not just political happy talk. That is a principle that is deeply engrained into the training of experience of every officer in the US military.

    Putin just drew a red line in Syria. Will Obama cross it?

    So Barry gave his stamp of approval on drone strikes against US citizens? Any sane President would have thought, "You want to execute a citizen without trial? Are you insane?!":mad: So Barry gave the go ahead. But why stop there? Kill his kid too.:rolleyes: Kennedy would have never allowed that. See Operation Northwoods.

    You're right, when it comes to the military. When it comes to the CIA and other covert agencies, they've never been under control. Read up on Allen Dulles sometime, he actively worked against the orders of every president he served under at the original director and founder of the CIA.

    There are parts of US force that are not under civilian control whatsoever.

    It would be too hard for him to find, seeing how he drew so many there already.
